Hi All,
new to this, and i havnt done much python programming,
i have written a program to write data to a text file.
each time i use the program, it appends the data to the file and leaves two lines between the sets of data

however, i want to write a tkinter GUI so it can read the sets of info and display it on the screen

possibly using a drop down box from the client name or client number to display the full information
but it must recognise new clients as they are added to the file

i dont know where to start

below is the text file that it creates, it is called patient_data.txt

I looks like homework, it's almost the same problem as JA5ONS's. You should try to work with him, or tell us more about your problem.
